This Genuine BMW manual shift knob fits all 1982 and on BMWs. It “snaps” onto your shifter level just as your stock shift knob does, and can be installed in a matter of seconds. This knob is much shorter and smaller than the “standard” knobs, and is weighted for better shifter feel. Available with your choice of either 5 speed or 6 speed shift pattern.
This knob is right out of the BMW Performance catalog, and features supple black alcantara suede (with great grip!) and a weighted body. This knob was specifically designed and marketed for the E82 / E88 1 Series and the E90/E92 3 Series, BUT it also fits all manual transmission BMWs from 1982 through present. This means this great looking and great feeling shifter knob can be used on almost every BMW (except 1981 and earlier).
